Koen

Why take a plane for that?

Ayende Rahien

Because I am coming from New Jersey

I agree with Koen... You can probably walk faster - or a two-hour drive...

The reason for this long time is that the shortest line between two points is a straight line. Since they didn't want to fly northbound (probably there's a lot of traffic going there), they decided to fly in a straight line, directed west-north-west. It's still supposed to be the shortest line, isn't it?

I think it's pretty obvious.

Although there is a flight due out of Seattle Sunday afternoon there isn't one due into Vancouver until Monday!

Timezones are a difficult thing. Especially when you count timezones in the wrong way (+6, +7, +8 etc) in stead of (+8, +7, etc). So basically you fly around the world according to this airline.

I had the same a few weeks ago when I arrived earlier than I left (local timezones), the flight was 45 minutes and the time wend back an hour, so according to my watch I arrived 15 minutes before I left ;-)

@Dave:

Look again. He's staying within the same timezone (PST) and traveling maybe 120 miles, yet the trip will take 30 hours. Its as though the +1 day was mistakenly added.

Hmm... this must be the Washington to Vancouver flight that has a stopover in Melbourne, Australia! ;-)

I worked for a Seattle based company and a few employees were commuting from Vancouver 2-3 times a week. I guess they were not taking this flight.

Peter Ritchie

They must be including the time you'll spend in Customs!

I guess you're taking the long-way round...

The 30 hours is the best-case estimate for your luggage to reappear. The flight itself is only 30 mins of course.
